What supports can you use to keep you going ...
Research shows that those people who use a range of support are better able to rise to challenges and succeed in life. Think about what supports you can use to ensure that you thrive in 2006 regardless of the challenges that you face.
Professional – coach, business advisor, mentor – I have always drawn on either professional coaches, peer coaching or mentors to support and challenge me through my life and career. Who can you call upon as a mentor or coach?
Friends – which friends are there to support you no matter what, who will celebrate your successes and help you work through your crisis?
Activities – what activities do or could you engage in that will support you physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, and emotionally?
Rewards/incentives – these are often used in larger organisations, but do we provide ourselves with enough rewards and incentives to keep ourselves going? What would be a good reward or incentive for you?
How can Grovelands help you?
In each issue of ‘Inspire’ I will describe a different aspect of our work.
Living with change. A few months ago I ran a Continuous Professional Development session for the Greater Manchester Police on Learning To Live With Change.
Over the years we have worked with individuals, teams and organisations helping them to manage and thrive within a changing environment.
For most of us change is a constant process, yet many people resist or struggle with it. We can assist people in understanding their reaction to the process of change and help managers develop their skills in supporting their teams through change.
Look out for August’s issue of ‘Inspire’ that will be about ‘Can you hang on to the holiday feeling throughout the year?’
People often talk about loosing the benefit of any holiday within about 24 hours of returning to work or home. But there are things you can do to hold onto the holiday feeling or to create it during your daily life.
